Pure noise is“acoustical randomness”, unpredictable sound.But why is some noise annoying and tiresome and other noise agreeable to listen to? Turn the wheel and hear an intriguing, stirring, even exciting type of noise. People tend to keep turning the wheel, they don’t want the noise to stop.
The noise is generated electromechanically:by electric current running through a rotating ball bearing.The simplicity of it and the intensity and “beauty” of the generated noise make the machine attractive for DJ’s and sound composers, they love it. The way van Twist discovered this special way of noise generation is fully in style: by accident! Oh, and it’s in stereo.
